My name is Becky, I'm almost 30, D B/F, Cord, is 44. We found out we were pregnant Sept. '09. We had a m/c on Dec. 3rd @ 15 weeks unfortunately. Right now we have to wait to try again. I just had radioactive iodine done for my over active-thyroid on Feb. 18th. So, we have to wait until at least August to try again (that way we're sure the eggs won't be radioactive). I also have high blood pressure and the doc is trying to figure out why. Right now I'm just trying to be patient. Easier said than done though as I'm sure you all know. :-) Anyone else have thyroid (Graves Disease) or high blood pressure issues? Just got back from the doc today and he said my thyroid levels were normal for now. Totally crossing my fingers that they'll stay that way so I don't have to do the radioactive iodine thing again...and then wait another 6 endless months.

Hi Becky,

Welcome to the board. I'm sorry to hear about your loss. That must have been really hard. It also must be really hard to wait when you are so ready right now but medically HAVE to wait. The ladies here are awesome. It's not a super busy board but it does help with the wait.

I'm Kate (27) and we have 20 month old twins. I just had an early m/c last week and so we're waiting a month to start trying again. I went to the "pregnancy loss" board here on iV but it was reeeeally not active. If you're looking to talk to other women who have a loss, you can go to "TTC after miscarriage". I know you're not trying now but you can chill there for a bit until you are.

Hi Becky, welcome to the board!! I hope your 6 month wait goes by quickly, what a frustrating place to be! I'm so sorry for your loss.

Hey Kate. I've seen you over on TTCAM. I'm a semi-active member over there...even though we are technically waiting. I guess it gives me hope that when it is my turn for a BFP I know I'll have tons of support over there.

I've been waiting to try for years for other medical reasons, that I hope will clear up soon enough as well.
